25 Clark, David R. and George P. Mayhew, Michael J. Sidnell. Druid Craft. The Writing of The Shadowy Waters.
University of Mass Press. 0870230689 / 9780870230684 1971 Hardcover in DJ. Good Good Octavo 
349 pp "William Butler Yeats conceived The Shadowy Waters around 1883 when he was in his late teens some eighteen years before it was first published as a dramatic poem in 1900. It was not produced as a play until 1904. In this volume the editors bring together prepublication drafts of the unique play - until now dispersed an d uncorrelated - which show the revisions Yeats made during those twenty some years. Even in this formative period when developing as poet and playwright, Yeats's interest in mythology, and his attempt to penetrate its meaning and to associate mythology and vision is evident."

A Woman's Life (Une Vie), de Maupassant, Guy
30 de Maupassant, Guy A Woman's Life (Une Vie)
The Nonesuch Press and The Heritage Press : London 1942  Hardcover. Good   Octavo 
216 pp "A Women's Life is built to the measure of those long, leisurely narratives in which we see a human life shaping its slow course over a long span of years, with its promise and performance , its vital trends and sorrows, its faltering plans, its failures. But it is only when the book is read and read again, and enjoyed and understood, that its real theme become evident. It becomes evident then that for Maupassant the life of a woman is typical of all of life; it may even be suggested that he said to himself, in whatever might have been the French argo of the day. 'Them women, they're all the same. ' "
